Katie Couric to do Newtown, Conn., telecast Monday
Katie Couric, who had said she would focus on news events in her new syndicated program when warranted, makes good on that promise Monday with a special edition originating from Newtown, almost three months since the school massacre. The program note:
Broadcasting from the Town Hall in Newtown, Couric will explore the healing process for families and friends of the 26 lives that were lost that day, how this country can have a reasonable debate about protecting our children as well as the rights provided by the Second Amendment, and the debate over mental health reform.
She'll speak to eight families or family members who lost someone that day, as well as experts on gun violence and mental health.
